If you enjoyed my Cinnamon Rolls or Stuffed Monkey Bread using Rhodes Dinner Rolls and my cast iron skillet, you will really enjoy this Butterscotch Breakfast Monkey Bread. My inspiration came from Gooseberry Patch’s Comfort Food Cookbook. I adapted the Caramel Pecan Breakfast Roll recipe in this cookbook. The butterscotch and brown sugar combination really makes a great caramel. I stuffed these Butterscotch Rolls with cream cheese. You not only get the great ooey, gooey, caramel outside but also a tasty surprise on the inside. I prepared this Butterscotch Stuffed Monkey Bread in a 10 inch cast iron skillet. I love using my cast iron skillet for this recipe. When I prepare this bread the night before for the next day’s breakfast and then place it into the refrigerator, I make sure to set the cast iron skillet out of the refrigerator for one to two hours before baking. If you place a cold cast iron skillet in the oven, you may crack it.
Butterscotch Breakfast Stuffed Monkey Bread – Adapted from Gooseberry Patch Comfort Food Cookbook.
- 1 – 3.4 ounce pack instant butterscotch pudding mix
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup milk (I added the milk to the recipe to make the butterscotch and brown sugar mixture even creamier.)
- 8 ounces cream cheese – cut into 1/4 inch strips and then into thirds.
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 12 frozen dinner rolls (I used Rhodes)
- Place 12 frozen dinner rolls in a cast iron skillet.
- Allow them to thaw for one hour.
- Cut each roll into 3 pieces.
- Place one cream cheese cube in the center of each roll that has been cut into 3 pieces.
- Wrap and seal the dough around cream cheese.
- Mix together the butterscotch pudding, brown sugar, cinnamon, and 1/2 cup milk together.
- Place the rolls back into the cast iron skillet.
- Sprinkle the chopped nuts on top of the rolls.
- Add the pudding mixture to the top of the stuffed rolls.
- Pour the melted butter all over the top of the rolls.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Stuffing this delicious Monkey Bread reminds me of how we should stuff our lives with good things. The Bible verse that came to my mind was Philippians 4:8.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” To me this verse means every movie we watch, every T.V. show we see, everything we hear, or basically everything we come in contact with, we need to ask ourselves if it is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, and praiseworthy. We should be stuffing our thoughts with things which are sweet to God. I pray we will all make a conscious effort to think about the things we think about.
